My Students

I am privileged to teach in a school with a very diverse population of students who strive each and every day to learn despite many obstacles that that they and their families face. Our school is in a neighborhood surrounded by other more prosperous neighborhoods, which makes it difficult to explain the high social and emotional needs our families have.

Our school has the highest English-Language Learner population in our community.

100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. We also serve several families who are homeless.

The students in my Kindergarten classroom come to school eager to learn and to participate in our daily activities. Their joy at coming to school fills me with joy! I look forward to their smiling faces everyday, and to celebrating their achievements, big and small. They inspire me to make their first school experience as wonderful and as memorable as I possibly can.

My Project

This rug will provide each student with their own defined place to sit during class meetings, read aloud story time, and whole-group learning activities.

My classroom consists of students who all receive free breakfast and lunch each school day.

They come to school eager and ready to learn, especially since they get a good, nutritious start to their day.

This new rug will replace a very dated, solid-colored rug. It would be wonderful to spend more time getting the classroom ready for students at the end of summer, without spending time using colored tape to make squares on the rug.
